All gas springs (gas pistons, gas rams) are NOT created equal! The Nitro Piston 2 has it all over the original Nitro Piston and almost every other gas spring on the market. Most gas springs have a reputation of being hard to cock, but the NP2 put an end to that. According to airgun writer Tom Gaylord, it's the easiest-cocking gas piston he's ever shot. But Crosman didn't stop the improvements there. They also improved the trigger so it feels like it's been tuned!

Imagine that: A factory trigger that breaks crisp and clean. It has a significantly lighter trigger-pull, not one of those so-called "lawyer" triggers that requires Herculean strength to shoot. As long as they were making improvements, Crosman decided to make a better and more effective integral sound suppression system that really is quiet. You'll notice an immediate difference between the report from your Nitro Piston 2 air rifle and the older Nitro Piston guns or other brands. So, let's add up what you'll get in this great package: Easy cocking, fantastic trigger and less noise. And, it's assembled in Crosman's plant in Bloomfield, New York. While that's almost everything you could ever want, there's one more thing

  • NItro-Piston 2 (gas piston)
  • Breakbarrel/Single-shot
  • 15% faster and double the effective shooting range
  • Smoother cocking Smoother shooting
  • No spring torque/spring fatigue
  • Clean Break Trigger(CBT)
  • Reduction in cocking effort
  • Ambidextrous
  • Textured grip and forarm
  • Manual safety
  • Includes CenterPoint Optics 3-9x32 scope and mount

"Nice Rifle"
October 27, 2014
I'm getting back into shooting again, it's been 15 years since I sold my Sheridan Blue Streak. I was looking for a rifle that was easier to shoot and load than the Sheridan, no more pumping and trying put load the pellet under the scope. I found the Sheridan very accurate from 50 feet and I wanted the same from this rifle. I had difficulty deciding on which cal to order so I ordered both, the 177 and the 22 cal rifles. The rifles were delivered earlier than expected, the package was very secure with no problems. I found the scope mounted very easily, I was shooting both rifles in a very short time. After shooting and sighting in the rifle I found a few minor issues with the scope, the screws came loose after shooting and had to be tightened after about 20 or 30 shots which was a nuisance, I resole the problem and used lok-tite on all the screws, I've fired about 100 shots with the screws still firmly secure. The other problem with the scope is I think it's sticking, when I made any adjustments to the elevation or windage it didn't seem to make any change, I even adjusted it 20 clicks and it still wouldn't show any change. What I did to resolve the problem is I would turn the adjustment 10 or 20 clicks in one direction and turn it back to it's original position, then make my adjustment. The rifle is a solid rifle, very well made, I was pleased with the feel and weight of the rifle, the cocking of the break barrel was a breeze, I did find it easier to break after a few hundred shots, it also is a little quieter now. I found the trigger the biggest problem, the travel on the trigger was much too long, even after making an adjustment, though I am starting to get used to it but it is still difficult to get any kind of a tight group. I purchased the rifles primarily for target shooting, i"m retired and I shoot for a few hours every day and I'm having a great time with them. I was in the Marine Corps in 1959 and I always enjoyed shooting, it's a great pastime. I would recommend these rifles to anyone
A great rifle, good feel good design. Break barrel is easier than I expected. Not as loud as I expected, I live in a suburbs and it's quiet enough to shoot in my backyard without upsetting the neighbors. Overall very impressive appearance.

Fair air rifle at a fair price
May 10, 2015
Shot a few pellets thew it. Works well. Cover a 5 shot target pattren with a quarter.(50 meter indoor range) Used 4 different pellets all by Crosmen. Haven't used any of the ulta light penetrators yet. Suggest you use the heaviest pellets you can find. The ,177 pellets tend to wonder with the wind easly. They seam to have fixed the trigger issue of the passed versions.Just ajust the screw to fit your preference.
Price,ease of shooting.a real plinker.Nice starter rifle to teach the kids the basics.
Not a reel fan of the scope that came with it. Wish it had a set of iron sights.Had to shave off burrs around the barrel sleeve,(QA should have caught that one) and it spins when you cock the spring. Really have to suck it in to the shoulder to keep a shot pattern. A little jumpy.

Benjamin Trail NP2 (22 cal)
January 21, 2015
Due to the two years and counting .22 lr shortage, I decided to revisit the air gun market. I must admit my previous experience (years ago) with spring piston guns had not impressed me, but I decided to look into what was now available and give it another go. I am very glad I did. Right out of the box I was impressed with the 22 caliber, Benjamin Trail NP2. The gun's size, stock design and weight seemed perfect for my 6'4" frame. Overall fit and finish was mush better than I expected at this price point, in fact it is excellent. After a quick bore cleaning and mounting the supplied scope I set about learning the gun. It quickly became obvious that the gun wanted to shoot well, but was hindered by the poor optics. Not having another air gun rated scope on hand, I mounted a spare Bushnell TRS 25 red dot. Even without magnification and despite my 63 YO eyes the gun produced 20 yard, 10 shot groups as shown. (Note the centered 8 shots were fired after minor windage adjustment.) To make a long story short(er), I will just say I'm glad I gave air guns another look and very happy with my choice of the Trail NP2.
Accurate Power Excellent ergonomics (stock fit) Relatively quiet A real scope rail that makes mounting any optic easy
Supplied scope does not do the gun justice. (understandable, as no one should expect a $200 scope to be supplied with a $200 gun.)

Quite and easy to cock
January 6, 2015
This is a nice rifle at this price range. First impressions were...Rifle looked nice, felt good when I shouldered it and it was easy to cock and pretty light. Within 25 rounds it seemed to shoot pretty well at 25 yards in a sitting position. It grouped at about a quarter size. As stated earlier is was easy to cock and very quite, sounded like a PCP gun. It shot the Crosman Premier Hollow Points, Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum Dome Pellets---both at 14.3 grains----seems to like these pellets the best, It also shot the JSB Exact Jumbo Heavy 18.3g pretty well. I just wished that it came with better optics as usual. The way Crosman brags about this shooting further than most gas pistons and other springers in its price range, you would think that they've bundle it with better optics to see at those range.
Nice feel to it, easy to cock, quite, I like that they finally put some scope rails on it to help prevent scope slide. The price is affordable.
The furnished 3x9x32 non AO scope with only 3 mildots, instead of full mildots for more range of adjustments is a disappointment. It just doesn't do justice for this gun.

I had no problems
December 20, 2014
I'm hearing everyone had problems with these rifles from I guess the first batch but I just got mine this past week and killed a quarter pounder dove from a 45 yrd distance IMO it stands up for itself next I'm gonna try hog hunting at a 15 yrd shot.
Powerful and accurate

An adult airgun
November 26, 2014
Shoots hard, kicks like a mule & very hold sensitive. Does not shoot to manufacture's claim in any area, but still is fun to shoot, so if you want a challenge this is the airgun for you.
Well made
Does not live up to manufacture's claims

Made in America, optic choice is a China paper weight
November 19, 2014
I shopped and compared for quite some time. Heard about the new NP2 and decided to hold out. I opted for the Camo version and learned of production set-backs due to contractor short-cuts, so after a 6 month + wait reordered a .22 Black. It is a great rifle and after 200 pellets thought I had it dialed in. I rechecked the scope mounts, everything tight, sand bagged in to take some of the variable out, yep! The scope is a cull, as "I shot out both turrets" (same memo I sent to Crossman/Benjamin). I would have bought the air rifle without the scope, but the cheap optics should have been left out of the "package." Would anybody order a new sports car with recap tires? Disgusting! I will order a "quality optic replacement" and realize the fine shooting potential this rifle has.
Good weight, fit (ambidextrous), safety placement, finish, thumbhole stock, re-engineered trigger/adjustable, and magnum harvest power! Great Rifle!
Top sharp edge of stock needs to be chamfered to avoid cuts. Offer a $ credit for optics or leave it out of the deal.

Number two hope it holds up
September 10, 2014
I bought a wood stock NP-2 same gun just a wood stock. See my review. I like this stock better so do my shooting buddies. My first trail NP-2 broke after about 700 rounds. The scope rail witch is spot welded to the gun came off right after I pulled the trigger. I had this less then two weeks when this happened. Air Gun Depot stood behind it. I up graded to a Hastan 155 in the 22 cal. I mounted a 6x24x40 AO BSA scope to both guns and that improved the accuracy buy 30%. This is a 20 to 40 yard gun. I have taken a ground squirrel at 60yd on 1 nice shot. I shoot these guns for target fun with other shooters at our home.I have an out door rang and it is a real hoot to shot. I fallow the owns manual on gun care and I believe this to be important to the life of the gun. The Trail NP-2 seem to have a 2 to three shot group ,the 3rd or 4th shot seems to fly.(just dose) If you want a break barrel gun, this shot nice, I just hope the scope rail stays on this one. Rob I bought the second one before the first one broke.
Shoots ok I would buy / I did buy another one. The rubber stock fits better(I think) Easy to cock and hits hard. 22 Cal
Week scope rails / needs up graded scope also

I love this NP2
August 18, 2014
I purchased the .22 NP2 August 5, 2014. I love this air rifle because it is very quiet, powerful, and accurate. It is very easy to cock and easy to hold. I've shot 600 plus Crossman hollow point pellets through it so far. I've taken six Squirrels and all were taking my tomatoes. Some of them were eating the tomatoes as they were taken. I shot these Squirrels at a range of 20-25 yards holding the NP2 free-handed. All were one shot one kill. I do not like the scope that came with it, but have not replaced it yet. A different scope will be on my Christmas list. It took me a short while to adjust the scope, but it was easy. I printed free targets online to set it up. I was concerned about how loud it would be because I have close neighbors. You can rest assured it is quiet enough they want even know what the noise is when you shoot it. It's more like a thump. This thing is powerful, when I hit these Squirrels they dropped instantly and barely even flinched. My Squirrel problem is now under control and am getting tomatoes now! I love target shooting now because I'm confident I can hit right where I aim consistently within a quarter sized area at 20 yards. I think this is because the trigger is more like a real gun. It does not take much pull at the second stage to fire so the gun does not move in the direction of the pull (I'm left handed no pull to the left). Buy one and shoot a tin of pellets through it then you will be use to it and you should experience what I'm experiencing. Please do not comment on the rifle or any other rifle until you've shot a tin of pellets through it. I almost did not purchase this NP2 because of negative reviews. I'm glad I took a chance on this one. I absolutely love it!

Why didn't they just do this to begin with!
August 11, 2014
I have serious doubts to the claim of 1200 FPS! I own the 1st version with the Realtree Camo stock and that rifle's claim is 950FPS, your lucky if it will shoot at 800FPS. I know that they make that claim using either plastic or lead free pellets but it would be nice to have a lead pellet velocity posted on the box or the claim as well. Another thing that has me wondering is why the downgraded the scope to a 3-9x32, Mine at least came with the Center Point 3-9x40AO scope a much better scope that what is offered on this rifle. Lastly I contacted Crosman last year when they first announced this new version 2 and asked if I could get the new power plant piston for my version 1. They said no they are not compatible with each other. That makes me a little angry knowing that I should have waited to buy my Benjamin!
